First Time


Discover a new passion with this rock climbing initiation course in the Briançonnais! Enjoy the area’s incredible cliffs while learning new skills with the help of a professional mountain guide.

This is the chance you’ve been waiting for to discover this adrenaline-filled sport. I have to warn you, though: it can become addictive!

The Ecrins are the perfect place for your first ascents. Great quality rock and mild weather make for an unbeatable combo!

Contact me in advance if  you are visiting the area during Spring, Summer or Autumn and we’ll plan for a great day together. I can take a maximum of 8 people on this course, so you can bring your family and friends along!

You can also choose between a half day and a full day, depending on your wishes and availability. During our time together, we will go through basic security rules and learn some of the key moves that will allow you to climb safely. Balance and efficient body positioning will be the day’s key concepts!

I discovered rock climbing at a very young age and decided to turn my passion into a full-time job. Thus, I became a IFMGA certified mountain guide in 2004 and, since then, have been taking people out to explore the region and discover and enjoy different outdoor sports and activities.

I can promise a fun-filled learning experience that you and your family and friends won’t ever forget. This rock climbing initiation course might be your first step towards becoming a true rock climbing fan.

Join me on this adventure and discover the joys that rock climbing has to offer. I’m always excited to get to share my passion with others and look forward to a great day together. Rest assured: you won’t regret a minute of it!

About the guide

I was born in 1990 and I am based in Toulon. I am a high mountain guide and photographer. I started loving climbing during my youth, and I later discovered alpinism. This took me to visit many paths in the Alps, as well as expeditions. At the same time, I became a high mountain guide when I was 24 because I loved it and wanted to share my passion.
I like to travel and I offer my services in the French massifs (Mercantour, Hautes Alpes, Chamonix) and abroad (Switzerland, Italy) all year long. I will do my best to enrich your journey with my experience and to guide you to reach you dream summit.

Climbing w Robin in the Gorges Verdon area was a dream come true. Robin is a fun guide to be with. He's very knowledgeable of the routes very safe in his practice and a very strong climber who makes it look easy. We did 2 long multi pitch routes that make me want to come back again and bring my friends.

Avec Robin, j'ai eu la chance de faire l'ascension du Mont-Blanc depuis le Nid d'Aigle. Il a su s'adapter à ma demande qui était de faire l'AR en une journée. Chose parfaitement exécutée. De plus il propose le prêt du matériel. Je recommande vivement, en plus d'être professionnel et pédagogue il est super sympa !

The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn't have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn't have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
